Unique Halloween Costume Ideas

It’s that time of the year again. Houses become haunted by ghosts and goblins, pumpkin patches pop-up around every corner and bowls of bite-size treats seem to be inescapable.

The countdown to Halloween is quickly approaching, so we’ve come up with a few costume ideas that are sure to make you stand out in the crowd. Ditch the pre-packaged polyester ensemble this year and get creative with one of our unique inspirations.

Cleopatra

Command attention and loyal followers when you walk like an Egyptian this Halloween in a Cleopatra-inspired outfit. Pair a dress with metallic embellishments around the neck with some gladiator sandals and a gold headband, and you’re good to go.

Mermaid:

Make a splash this year for Halloween. Start out with a mermaid dress (yep, they’re called that for a reason), which hugs the body up top and fans out at the bottom, giving the appearance of fins. Keep it simple – mermaids don’t need accessories after all – and finish it off with one or two accessories reminiscent of the sea.

Marie Antoinette

Channel Marie Antoinette as a French Revolution-era queen. Just wear a poufy dress and a fascinator, and you’re practically royalty. Don’t lose your head over all of the attention.
